Yeah Yeah Yeahs Announce Mosquito Album's Release Date
Itís been a long time since the Yeah Yeah Yeahís have been at the forefront of music news. In the time since the bandís 2009 album, Itís Blitz!, dropped frontwoman Karen O went on to write music for the Where the Wild Things soundtrack and in 2011, the band hinted there might be a new album for fans to look forward to in 2013. As it turns out, fans wonít have to wait much longer for a new album. Mosquito is set to be available for purchase in April of this year.
Mosquito is the bandís fourth studio album. The band dropped the above art as well as a message announcing Mosquito on Monday. Interestingly, the album was recorded at Sonic Ranch in Tornillo, Texas, the same location that Beach Houseís fourth studio, Bloom, was recorded at. I wish I could say the two bands worked together on one weird-ass track, but as it stands, Mosquito will have a few different players in the lineup.
According to NME, one track will feature Dr. Octagon and will be produced by James Murphy, of LCD Soundsystem fame. Karen O also told the outlet that Mosquito will be similar to the bandís other bodies of work, in that it will be all over the placeómeaning it should also be completely different than anything the Yeah Yeah Yeahs have put out before.
"WellÖitís definitely different from the last album. So I guess you could say that hasnít changed about us! Itís all over the place. The sound of the record is, I guess, a bit more lo-fi sounding and slightly more influenced by roots reggae.Ē
Keep your eyes peeled for new music on the horizon--because itís definitely coming--and look for Mosquito to hit outlets on April 16.
